Gender and the Syntax of Being: Joy Ladin on Gender and Identity

by On Being with Krista Tippett


For as far back as Joy Ladin can remember, her body didn’t match her soul. Gender defines us from the moment we’re born. But, how is that related to the lifelong work of being at home in ourselves? You’ve got to check out our show this week, "Gender and the Syntax of Being." Krista’s interview with her explores this question through Joy’s story of transition from male to female — as a poet, as a parent, and as a the first openly transgender woman teaching in an Orthodox Jewish world.

I found this Tumblr blog entry very appropriate to the current events in Washington, D.C., especially after the #SCOTUS declared #DOMA #unconstitutional.
